Title
Three-year follow-up of five posterior composites : SEM study of differential wear
Author
Abstract
Assessing the wear of both enamel and composite at a shared occlusal contact area offers the opportunity to determine the differential wear between enamel and composite on the same tooth. Differential wear measurements were carried out on five posterior composite materials with an accurate 3D-measuring technique. The distinct wear step between enamel and composite was visualized by means of scanning electron photomicrographs. Both investigated ultrafine midway-filled and fine compact-filled composites (Willems et al.. 1992a) have a considerably higher differential wear value and are, therefore. less suitable for rehabilitation of posterior teeth than are the ultrafine compacf-filled composites, which have, in this study, a very satisfactory differential wear rate and appear to be highly wear resistant materials suitable for use in stress-bearing areas.
